To celebrate the release of Fellini’s CASANOVA on Blu-Ray in the UK from 7th September 2015, we’ve two copies to give away courtesy of Mr Bongo Films.

Federico Fellini’s darkest film cracks through the myth of Giacomo Casanova. As played by Donald Sutherland (M.A.S.H, Don’t Look Now), the notorious womanizer is presented as a pitiable and terrifying figure. Casanova craves respect as a scholar and yearns to pursue his interest in alchemy. A sex scandal lands him in prison, but an escape to Paris provides him a new lease of life. Yet every Court in Europe and its attendant patrons and hostesses will only entertain him if he lives up to his reputation in the ritual displays of sex and courtship which form part of the daily life of 18<sup>th</sup> Century Europe. Fellini had dealt with the theme of the frustration of human desires in La Dolce Vita and 8 ½. In Casanova, the nobleman’s search for happiness achieves tragedy, a painful reflection of the human condition.

BatI love prosthetic effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: Silent Hill

  1. Joint favourite Donald Sutherland films are National Lampoons Animal House and Don’t Look Now.

  2. Oddball in Kellys Heroes, saw it in the cinema and he plays the the perfect character for him so straight.

  3. Definitely Don’t Look Now, it stayed with me for a long time.

  4. He was great as Vernon Pinkly in the Dirty Dozen, especially when he was acting as a General to inspect the troops, who were guarding the prison camp. That scene was hilarious, loved the movie.

  5. Vernon Pinky in Dirty Dozen, he was strong In an established cast and he made it a fun movie

  6. Invasion of the Body Snatchers with the haunting ending. I won’t give anything away ????

  7. Don’t Look Now. A very creepy film and of course with THAT sexy scene that has been much talked about. He and Jullie Christie had terrific chemistry.

  8. Don’t look now

  9. Kelly`s Heroes as the role was well acted and I really enjoyed the film

  10. The body snatchers for me!

  11. Definitely Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

  12. dont look now – so spooky

  13. Hunger Games, he was wicked.

  14. Hawkeye Pierce in M*A*S*H, 1970. Probably the first film I saw him in at the pictures. Fabulously dry and humorous and one of the Seminal films of its era. Sutherland’s portrayal of Hawkeye would be considered one of the great characterisations of all time if not for Alan Alda making “Hawkeye” his in the long running TV series.

  15. that’s a very tough question. sutherland has one of the all time great filmographies. no matter what you like, he’s done it.

    i’ll go for “day of the locust”. massive flop at the time, but stands up so well now. it’s a dark, difficult, strange and brilliant. sutherland’s character is called homer simpson, which adds a little layer that wasn’t there at the time, particularly to the ending. great performance from him too (great performances from everyone, actually).

    surprised to find out more recently that the horrible androgynous jeepers creepers child who gets trampled by sutherland was played by jackie earle haley.

  16. Don’t look now – Very creepy film.

  17. MASH brings home the stupidity of war through laughter.

  18. Pride and Prejudice was kind of different for him, I thought he was good in that. And The Hunger Games.

  19. Don’t Look Now its a really spooky film

  20. Klute, I also like the Kate Bush, Cloudbusting video.

  21. Don’t Look Now, it was scary and the relationship between his and Julie Christie ‘ss was well portrayed.

  22. Definitely Don’t Look Now

  23. JFK – just a great mystery

  24. Kelly’s Hero’s – positive thinking man!

  25. Hunger Games

  26. Don’t Look Now – Saw it when it was in the cinema when it was released – frightened me to death! Also made the very attractive girl I was with to grab hold of me tightly! 😉

  27. Invasion of the Body Snatchers- it still scares me when towards the end you think they are safe and going to get away then all of a sudden that terrifying screaming sound they make to identify those who have not yet been taken over and their fingers pointing at the “human”.

  28. Invasion of the Body Snatchers, WAS VERY GOOD AND HAD ME THRILLED

  29. Invasion of the Body Snatchers was a great thriller

  30. don’t look now rules, excellent story and brilliant visuals and some genuinely creepy bits in venice to boot!

  31. Don’t look now such a spooky film and wired ending

  32. Kelly’s Heroes – no contest

  33. Kelly’s Heroes

  34. Too many to choose from but I’ll go with the more recent Hunger Games because he is perfectly cast and utterly convincing as the sadistic president.

  35. Don’t Look Now – scary!

  36. Invasion of the Body Snatchers

  37. I think An American Haunting was brilliant

  38. Backdraft, he is pure evil in that film

  39. Lock up with stallone he was very convincing as having a grudge against stallone in the movie.

  40. Invasion Of The Bodysnatchers, he played the part well. A great movie and very creepy.

  41. Don’t Look Now. An eerie film both in look and feel.

  42. kellys heros, odd ball by name odd ball by nature, also liked buffy and mash

  43. Don’t look now

  44. Don’t Look Now, lovely film and still good now

  45. dont look now, old but good. spooky and has you on the edge of your seat !

  46. As a lead ‘Bodysnatchers’…but I think he was much better in his support roles, especially as the looney tank commander in ‘Kelly’s Heroes’ and in my fave five minute scene ever (in J.F.K.) with his myth busting speech as ‘X’…- people are suckers for the truth…very cool Buba 😉

  47. Kelly’s Heroes – he’s driving a tank!

  48. He was great in Mash, both funny and exciting

  49. Don’t Look Now because I have always loved it because of the themes and how well it’s shot but, having just come back from Venice (where I got lost, at night!!), it now has a greater resonance.

  50. Loved him in the Invasion of the Bodysnatchers

  51. Bethune – takes in many countries, Russia, China amongst others. Fact based and inspiring, thought provocking, whilst entertainng

  52. Salem’s Lot, he’s really casmp in this film.

  53. Invasion of the Body Snatchers – I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. The end scene still gives me the willies!

  54. This is very interesting, would love to see it.

  55. Always been a big fan of Alistair Mcleans books with Bear Island being a particular favourite. Donald Sutherlands portrayal of Frank Lansing was brilliant and very true to the character in the book

  56. Invasion of the Body Snatchers, because i’m a fan of horror films.

  57. Don’t Look Now

  58. Got to be MASH. War is mental..The comedy exposes it brilliantly

  59. KLUTE Both he and Fonda are excellent in this film. A joy to watch!

  60. Don’t look now – creepy!

  61. Kelly’s Heroes where Odball certainly lives up to his name

  62. I love the character he plays in Animal House but I would have to say that my favourite s The Eagle Has Landed.

  63. Kelly’s Heroes – plays a fabulous part!

  64. The remake of invasion of the bodysnatchers. I saw it when i was young and some of the scenes still stick with me today

  65. invasion of the body snatchers – i had to watch it on fast forward as it was so eerie

  66. There are many great performances to choose from – Don’t Look Now, Kelly’s Heroes and MASH were all worthy, but I’d vote for Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

  67. President Coriolanus Snow from Hunger Games, im a huge fan of the book and he plays the part so well a very believable actor.

  68. Ohhhh – I love him in anything he does !! Think I will go for Kelly’s Heroes though 🙂 x

  69. M*A*S*H is my favourite. He does comedy really well – it’s his face, I think.

  70. Invasion of the Body Snatchers, who has turned, who hasn’t 🙂

  71. He was great in LOCK UP- he played the evil guy awesomely!

  72. don’t look now – he played the part so well

  73. Ordinary People – just for his acting

  74. Kelly’s Heroes, classic war film with all the stars. What’s not to like.

  75. Don’t look now

  76. Don’t Look Now

  77. Don’t look now was scary

  78. His role in the Hunger Games as President Snow stood out amongst a stellar cast, his sinister approach portrays the character in a manner fitting of the book

  79. Donald Sutherland is such an accomplished actor that anything he does is usually very good – Invasion of the Bodysnatchers, Klute, Animal House. But he also did some dire movies – so I’m going for The Kentucky Fried Movie – he is the only thing I can remember about this awful movie when I watched it as a kid.

  80. In The Eagle Has Landed he played the role of Liam Devlin with such charm that you were almost glad when he managed to escape after the failed attempt on Churchill’s life

  81. Cold Mountain

  82. I enjoyed him in kellys heroes

  83. Great in Kelly’s heroes but was a bit scary for me

  84. A Time To Kill – probably the best Grisham book film adaptation

  85. The iconic m*a*s*h for me

  86. best movie Donald Sutherland has ever appeared in is the Nic Roeg ghostly masterpiece “Don’t Look Now”. as the non believing psychic who believes he keeps seeing the image of his dead daughter but in fact is seeing the dwarf who will kill him. Absolutely brilliant.

  87. Don’t look now

  88. Love him in the Italian Job, you always feel is presence in a movie character. He has a great part in the movie even if it is a short one. Very strong personality get you grip in from the start.

  89. dont look now – so spooky

  90. Don’t Look Now – great moving performance in a disturbing film about grief

  91. Invasion of the body snatchers is my favourite because it’s creepy all the way through.

  92. JFK – cause I love historical movies.

  93. Don’t Look Now
